The Australians are responsive to leading their tech industry to its next phase using its resources. Droneit Group — the flight academy, started classes on practical professional courses — distinction students get accredited license to professionally pilot unmanned air vehicles within Australian territory.
The Australian government intends to enact the first “laws on content payments” while anticipating global regulatory agencies to adapt to its first content payment policy, which resulted in Google’s threat to leave the Australian tech industry.
In line with one of Droneit’s students, Terry Worsfold (who seeks a pilot license) — he noted that he discovered Droneit Group via Google, Alphabet Inc’s search engine.
“Yeah, just organic results, no ads. I looked at a couple of their competitors, then I reached out to them, and it looked like they had the best deal,” Worsfold said.
Meanwhile, the Australian fiscal report shows that Google Search has 94% of the search results generated in Australia — this explains why they are so keen on enacting its new policy. The intent to redirect its resources back to the Australian control has pushed several domestic businesses to switch focus on other tech companies such as Microsoft.
As per Droneit’s digital campaign manager, Viktor Nikolov, he said: “We’ll need to pivot our marketing strategy and our website strategy. We’d also move a lot of our focus onto social media.”
Both Facebook and Google collided to leave the Australian tech marketplace last month — Canberra’s act mandates the payment for sharing or showing search results of Australian news content on their social platforms should be dropped.
On behalf of the Australian government, Scott Morrison intervened on Google’s threat of leaving their tech market — this move by the US-based tech companies has degraded the Australian internet accessibility. He advice chief executives of domestic businesses to change business strategies, whereby sourcing alternatives to ensure its industrial growth possibilities to thrive exceeding the fund’s Google and Facebook have lobbied overtime.
The prospect of the Australian Prime Minister’s consent is centered on the expectations he had for the world’s largest tech companies to negotiate a certain fee to be paid. Although neither does Google nor Facebook intends to comply with the Australian government, if not, the arbitrator assigned by Scott Morrison would have initiated the negotiations on their say-so.
Morrison also highlighted that several startup newsrooms have folded because of Facebook and Google’s oppressive power, resulting in a devastating number of job losses and widespread shutdowns. He noted that other countries are already using alternatives with the intent to spread funds globally.
During the end of 2020, Google revealed that they would push support publishing company with one billion dollars globally in three years to come. Google continued to argue with the Australian legislation; hopefully, the proposed bill is dropped to enable them to launch their forthcoming Google news platform in Australia.
